In this minisode, Tom talks about his love of hatchets, axes and tomahawks. We chat about both traditional and tactical styles and discuss a few great makers and designs out there today. This minisode ran a bit longer than usual, but we expect it’s one you’ll enjoy. Did we miss your favorite axe or tomahawk maker or design? Let us know!

We are joined by knifemaker Chris Taylor of Taylor Made Knives in this episode. Chris tells us about his life, his work and how he came into the knife making world. Although he isn’t a really a new maker, he’s new to the “big show” scene and we discuss some of the challenges that newer makers face as their work becomes more well known and in demand. We touch on what the guys are working on, the fancy new tool Tom has incoming and some MotM merch we’ve got in the works.

In this minisode series, we’ll talk with Sean Kendrick about how his experience going back to school later in life is impacting his knifemaking. Sean talks about what got him motivated to head down this path and a little about how it has already influenced his perspective.

We had questions for one another, about life and about knifemaking – so we asked them. These turned into discussions that we thought you might find interesting or helpful. Topics range from music to back pain to knife making processes and belt selection and even a conversation about cars. Definitely a ramble and one that ran longer than any of us expected. We enjoyed the chat, and hope you will as well. Follow us on Instagram @markofthemaker or join our discussion group on Facebook.
Custom knifemaker Jeremy Marsh joins us this time on Mark of the Maker. Jeremy is a toolmaker by trade and he explains how his experiences as a tool and die maker helped him gain the skills to form the basis of his craft. As seems to often be the case, his background has some common touchpoints with our own but for sure, Jeremy’s story is unique. We talk knives, knife shows, and about how the pursuit of perfection is a common thread between craftsmen of all types. Follow us on Instagram @markofthemaker or join our discussion group on Facebook.
